Crowdfund investing legislation passed the U.S. House 407-17. Now, the U.S. Senate is considering similar legislation that would modernize SEC regulations and allow entrepreneurs to raise and identify new sources of capital through crowdfunding platforms. How will these platforms work to help entrepreneurs raise capital while protecting investors? How do startups use crowdfunding currently? How would startups and startup investors like to use crowdfunding in the future? What about fraud? Experts on crowdfunding and advocates for reform legislation will answer questions about this transformative approach for raising capital.

Briefing will take place at:
Jones Day
51 Louisiana Avenue, N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20001-2113
